Workshop Overview:
Joel F. Lubar, Ph.D., University of Tennessee
Judith O. Lubar, LCSW-BCD, Southeastern Biofeedback and Neurobehavioral Institute

  Because of the complexity of disorders that are now being evaluated and treated using neurofeedback interventions, it is becoming increasingly necessary to employ quantitative EEG analyses ranging from single to 19 channels in order to develop appropriate protocols for treatment. For example, more than six subtypes of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have been identified through QEEG analysis. This workshop will demonstrate--using equipment and actual participants--the recording of multi-channel EEG, the use of databases, advanced artifact rejection, and analysis for choosing appropriate protocols for treatment, and use of LORETA imaging. Equally important is the integration of the information obtained from QEEG analysis with both neurofeedback training and psychotherapy for individuals and families in order to increase the transfer of training to real life situations.

Based on the content of this session, the participants will be able to

1. Discuss the essentials of EEG pattern recognition
2. Record 19 channel EEG information and perform quantitative analysis of EEG
3. Utilize training protocols that are established based on quantitative EEG
4. Perform actual neurofeedback training
5. Explain how neurofeedback is integrated with individual or family therapy.

  • Introduction to EEG concepts

  • Meaning of EEG terminology and interpretation of signatures normal, and abnormal

  • Designation and meaning of different EEG signatures and their behavioral correlates

  • Distinction between raw EEG and QEEG

  • Reading Fourier transforms and power spectral analysis

  • Topographic brain maps

  • Artifacts which can contaminate EEG records: how to recognize them and minimize them, and demonstration of a  new methodology for eliminating most artifact from the recordings

  • In class demonstration of Q-EEG Mapping and analysis, its strengths and limitations.  Emphasis on interpreting data from the point of view of clarity of the signal and behavioral significance.

  • Procedures in initial assessment when doing QEEG

  • Preparation and interpretation of a multi-channel QEEG

  • Development of neurofeedback protocols based on QEEG analysis

  • Specific protocols for ADD/HD, seizures, depression, anxiety, alcohol/drug dependency, Tourette=s Syndrome and the treatment of affective disorders and others

  • Clinical Information, gathering for evaluation and assessment of success in neurofeedback.

  • Interview techniques that help the patient and their family to define and sometimes reframe goals in treatment

  • Rapid methods that help gather data on the clients and families personal histories, symptoms, and medication so that one can assess indications and counter-indications for success in neurofeedback

  • Developing a treatment program

  • Psychotherapy and biofeedback principles:  Explaining to the patient the treatment rationale

  • Deciding on possible techniques to be used in conjunction with neurofeedback including psychotherapy, family therapy and hypnotherapy


The following segment of the workshop will include illustrative case histories with graphs of EEG changes over time.

  • Referential and bipolar montages: choosing the appropriate montage based on some characteristics of individual EEG

  • Differences in applicability for certain syndromes

  • Other neuroimagining methods B including LORETA

  • Monitoring drug treatment

  • Generalization of training

  • Graphing data for continuous evaluation and improvement with specific case histories illustrations

  • EEG graphs for different syndromes and specific therapeutic problems

  • Appropriate tests for evaluation of results

  • Case histories illustrating pre- and post treatment assessment in both EEG and auxiliary assessment and tests.

  • Putting it all together: Illustrative case histories which illustrates multiple interventions in addition to neurofeedback

Joel F. Lubar Ph.D.

Dr. Joel Lubar received his B.S. and Ph.D. from the Division of the Biological Sciences and Department of Biopsychology at the University of Chicago. He has published more than 85 papers, numerous book chapters, as well as eight books in the areas of Neuroscience and Applied Psychophysiology. He has been a Regional Editor for the Journal Physiology and Behavior, an Associate Editor for Biofeedback and Self Regulation, and is currently one of the editors of the Journal of Neurotherapy.

He has held the position of Assistant Professor at the University of Rochester. Leaving behind his Associate Professorship, he is currently Full Professor at the University of Tennessee.

Dr. Lubar is the past president of AABP(Associantion for Applied Psychophysiology) He has been the president of the Academy of Certified Neurotherapist which now offers specialty certifications in EEG Biofeedback as part of the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America (BCIA). He has also been the president of the EEG Division of the AAPB. He has served on the BCIA Board of Directors, and as a member of the executive board of the AAPB. He was previously an officer on the board of the Biofeedback Research Society. He was the first President of the Biofeedback Society of Tennessee. Since 1979 he has been co-director of the Southeastern Biofeedback and Neurobehavioral Institute, in Knoxville, Tennessee. Dr. Lubar has presented his research at many workshops in Europe, South America, Canada, Israel, Australia and to many State and National meetings of Biofeedback Organizations. He was an invited keynote speaker at the Third International Conference in Biobehavioral Self Regulation and Health, held in Tokyo, Japan, October, 1993.

Dr. Lubar was responsible for developing the use of EEG Biofeedback (Neurofeedback) as a treatment modality for children, adolescents, and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, starting with his controlled studies in the mid-1970's. This application of Neurofeedback is now becoming widespread in clinics and schools throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Israel, Europe and Mexico. Currently, more than 1500 health care organizations are using the EEG biofeedback protocols that Dr. Lubar has developed. Dr. Lubar is currently developing databases for the assessment of individuals with ADD/ADHD, and is a consulting in several controlled studies evaluating the effectiveness of Neurofeedback. In a 1992 publication, in Pediatric Neurology, he and his colleagues showed, for the first time, that children with the inattentive form of ADD (without hyperactivity), differ significantly in terms of quantitative EEG patterns, from matched control non-ADD children.


Judith O. Lubar M.A., MS., LCSW., BCD., BCIA

Judith Lubar has been working in the fields of Neurofeedback, family and individual therapy with children, adolescents and adults who experience ADD/HD for the past 23 years. She has presented professional papers and workshops on these topics in the USA, Germany, Venezuela, Canada, Puerto Rico, Israel, Australia and Europe.

Her specialty is combining therapeutic concepts with EEG biofeedback into a clinical methodology in which each of the elements enriches the other. Mrs. Lubar has been a member of the Association for Applied Psycho physiology and Biofeedback (AAPB) and the past President of the Biofeedback Society of Tennessee. She is formerly president of the South American Chapter of the AAPB, and was Secretary of the Society for Neuronal Regulation (SNR). She is currently a member of the AAPB Board.

Judith Lubar has been presenting individualized tutorial training workshops for individuals, health care organizations and private practices in both general biofeedback, and the specialty area of EEG neurofeedback since the late 1970's. She has worked with both private and public schools in facilitating the integration of neurofeedback for ADD/HD with curricula.

This workshop offers 16 hours of diadictic BCIA-EEG credit toward certification.

If you wish to obtain this credit there is a BCIA fee of $48.00. This should be paid as a check made out to BCIA and presented to the Lubars at the time of the workshop. If you decide to obtain this credit toward the requirement of 40 hours of required diadictic training you will recieve at the completion of the workshop a certificate issued by Southeastern Biofeedback Institute who is the BCIA-EEG approved organization for this workshop. This is not a requirement for taking this workshop but an added benefit for those interested in obtaining BCIA-EEG certification.
